One of the last remaining hamlets in Ontario

Glen Williams is a unique treasure. It’s one of the last remaining hamlets in Ontario – perhaps in Canada – and a village with character and a true sense of community. Life in Glen Williams is reminiscent of simpler days.

Nestled on the banks of the Credit River valley at the north end of Georgetown along the Niagara Escarpment, Glen Williams is part of the town of Halton Hills, Ontario. Glen Williams is home to many visual artists, contains a collection of artist’s studios and is a major draw to the area. Glen Williams has a compact community core that includes two restaurants and a bakery cafe, a Town Hall, parks, churches and homes. The character of the hamlet of Glen Williams is largely defined by the heritage buildings and natural setting, which help give Glen Williams its distinctive look and feel. These buildings help create an environment that is distinctive and lays the foundation for a remarkable community.

The Credit River flows through the village and extends over 1500 km from the Niagara Escarpment, emptying into Lake Ontario. Glen Williams is home to many species of birds, mammals and fish, with the river and nearby conservation areas providing exemplary habitat for several species that have been designated as endangered or at-risk .  This Hamlet is a treasure in Halton Hills and needs our care and consideration.

…I marvel at how I continue to be captivated by this place and the people who live here. I, by a strange twist of fate, have become one of those lucky people who get to call Glen Williams home.
